NUC7i7DNKE fanless CPU noise

I am running NUC7i7DNKE in a fanless case with SSD. I am noticing a faint noise which I have narrowed down to the CPU (Intel Core i7-8650U) when Turbo boost is enabled but not evident when I disable turbo boost. Some kind of high pitched noise I think has been reported by others as well looking at a Google search. Sound the same as on the video here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m5U8ERWNgd8&feature=youtu.be Dell XPS 13 9360 (Kaby Lake) - Coil Whine - YouTube

Not something that I cannot live with but I just wondered if there was any workaround or something else that could be done without sacrificing performance.

Hello bodk

 

 

Thank you for joining the community.

 

 

I see that you are having problems with a noise on the Intel® NUC, allow me to help you with this investigation.

 

 

Looking into the Intel® NUC Kit NUC7i7DNKE TPS I see that the unit has a fan on the system build please refer to the following link https://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/mini-pcs/nuc-kits/NUC7i7DN_TechProdSpec.pd... https://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/mini-pcs/nuc-kits/NUC7i7DN_TechProdSpec.pd... on page 13 for the thermal solution.

 

 

In order to help you better, I would like to gather more information about the configuration you have on the computer. Please attach to this thread the TXT file the Intel® System Support Utility will generate: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25293/Intel-System-Support-Utility https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25293/Intel-System-Support-Utility

 

Steps to save the report:
  1. Run the utility.
  2. Click on "Scan" to get the scanned system.
  3. Once the scan is complete click on "next".
  4. Use the "save" option, save the report to your desktop.
  5. To attach a file, you must click the "Attach" option on the bottom right-hand corner of the response box.

 

Could you provide me with a picture of the cooling configuration that you have on BIOS? Enter BIOS with F2 go to advance> cooling.

 

 

Regards,
